My dad bought his first Jeep when I was 14. A 2004 Rubicon that we've taken to Moab multiple times a year since that time. I was always hooked and knew that once I was out of high school I would definitely need to be getting my own. When I was finally able to purchase my own vehicle I found this awesome 2006 Rubicon within my price range. Picked it up and have slowly been changing out all the parts that didn't work for me or were worn. It drives perfectly down the road and is constantly surprising me off-road even though I'm always scheming new ways to afford more parts for it. It is really a lifelong hobby and joy for me.

06 LJ Rubicon build. 37 x 12.5 tires, Rokmen highline front fenders, tummy tuck, sliders, full rear corner armor and aluminum dropdown tailgate. LED tail/brake/turn lights. Lightforce 170's and 140's auxillary lighting. The Rubicon already has Dana 44's front and back so just installed chromoly shafts. Woods rear drive shaft. I was already running a 3.5" Rubicon express lift so no more lift was required. The ride is incredible after regearing to 5.13. Already installed the Vanco brake upgrade as well as the beefier Currie steering upgrade.

This Jeep has been in my family since it rolled off the lot with less than 100 miles. I remember going with my family to the dealership just to "look" at one since my dad had always wanted a Jeep and his Bronco was totaled. We ended up driving off of the lot with it that Easter weekend of '98. All of the neighbor kids thought it was so cool when the top was down and my mom would take us for a ride. A few years later when I could reach the pedals my mom would let me take it "off-road" (just dirt pastures), it was great. Then my sister turned 16 and drove it for a while until it finally became mine after turning 17. I wheeled it stock when I could, and now have a part time job to fund my mods. I never plan on selling it; luckily my girlfriend understands. I can't wait for a steady source of income so that I can make some serious changes to a rig I can call my own.
